    I’ve learned XHTML, CSS now

    I want to learn jquery to create much interactivity. is it must to learn JavaScript before ?

    if answer is yes then is it beneficial to learn C Programming (not c++) before to JavaScript ?


    jQuery is famous for being simple, quick, and easy to learn, hence it is the "write less, do more" javascript library. I learned jQuery with hardly a working knowledge of javascript, and it’s the only javascript library that I use. If you really get into writing small web apps with fancy effects, then you will probably have to learn javascript and other javascript libraries, but for just simple web design, jQuery is all you need.


    Slightly off topic, but can anyone recommend any good resources i can learn jquery in my spare time?


    ScottMacD: This one is not very comprehensive, yet a good one to start with:




    Check out [30 Days to Learn jQuery](, free course from Tuts+.

    Don’t worry about JavaScript for now. Get a hang of jQuery, then once you have decent grasp of it, look trough the source code and see how they wrote the framework. This can give you some idea how JavaScript works. Another major reason to use jQuery is cross-browser compatibility right out of the box. And it’s actively maintained by the community.


    lol!!! thats hilarious! how did someone randomly find this and respond?
